This supplementary chargesheet, the eighth filed by the ED, names the Aam Aadmi Party and its convener Arvind Kejriwal as the principal accused. According to the ED, there is sufficient evidence to prosecute Kejriwal in the case. The agency has identified him as the main conspirator in the alleged excise scam, which implicates other AAP leaders and private individuals as well.

The ED’s investigation suggests that Kejriwal was actively involved in various criminal processes, including the utilization of illicit funds for election campaigns. Notably, these funds were allegedly used for AAP’s campaign during the Goa Assembly elections in 2022.

To date, 18 individuals have been arrested in connection with this case. The ED alleges that these individuals collaborated with Delhi government ministers, AAP leaders, and others to perpetrate the scam.

As the court proceedings move forward, the appearance of Arvind Kejriwal and other accused individuals on July 12 is expected to bring further developments to this high-profile case.
